Deering Lumber, a division of US LBM, raised $24,000 for two technical high schools at the eighth edition of its charity golf tournament at Sanford Country Club in Sanford, Maine. Funds were distributed equally between Biddeford Regional Center of Technology and the Sanford Regional Technical Center in support of their building trades programs.

“We are proud to support these innovative building trades programs, both of which are developing the next generation of contractors and construction professionals in our area,” Dave Chepais, purchasing manager for Deering Lumber and one of the organizers for the golf event, said in a prepared statement. “It’s a win-win for everyone in our community that these teens have the resources they need to get great educations and prepare for their future careers.”

Customers, vendor partners, and associates at Deering Lumber, a distributor of specialty building products in southern Maine, participated in the charity golf event.

“It was a great day of fun, fundraising, and networking,” Heidi McDonald, president and general manager of Deering Lumber, said. “Thanks to the generous support of our vendors, local contractors, and Deering Lumber associates, we were able to again exceed our previous year’s fundraising total. We look forward to continuing to grow our fundraising efforts in the coming years.”

Founded in 1866, Deering Lumber is a distributor of specialty building products to custom builders and remodelers across Main and along the New Hampshire Seacoast, providing customers with products, including manufactured building components, custom millwork, and cabinetry. US LBM acquired Deering Lumber in December of 2018.
